Making False and Disparaging Statements

Gary Thomas a member of Post 290 made a statement to the King Police Department and made an untruthful sworn statement to the District Court Judge-Magistrate to bring false charges of Disorderly Conduct against Mr. Hewett. This was in retaliation day after Legion Member Ronald Shouse was charged by the King Police for Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Careless & Reckless Driving. Holt claims he was at the Legion at 10:30 which was being used as a polling station. Where he observed Mr. Hewett displaying a sign “Veterans Against Trump” with a “Hillary” sign attached to it and obviously that’s true because Mr. Hewett was there electioneering for and against candidates. He like Rosamond makes claims Mr. Hewett was disparaging Veterans. “Individual was disparaging Veteran’s @ a public place. Also, presenting gestures disrespecting Veterans.” Yet he fails to describe how Mr. Hewett was disrespecting Veterans unless giving the middle finger in return to Mr. Shouse and other Legion member doing the same. No where in his statement to the police does Holt comment as to what Mr. Hewett said. Yet in the Criminal Summons he swears to something different. Mr. Thomas’s statement to the Magistrate. “The Defendant repeatedly gave me and the group of American Legion members I was with the middle finger while saying to us “Y’all come on over here.” We already established Mr. Hewett did give Shouse the middle finger in return to him flipping Mr. Hewett off. Yet, like Rosamond Holt was untruthful in his sworn statement to the Judge-Magistrate by claiming Mr. Hewett said, ‘Y’all come on over here.” This comment was repeatedly state by Mr. Shouse not Mr. Hewett. Just like Rosamond committed perjury under oath, so did Thomas!

Sworn Statement to the Stokes Co. District Judge-Magistrate, on November 9, 2016.
The American Legion is a non-partisan organization both in politics and religion. The Legion does not endorse any Political Candidate nor are they suppose to endorse any one particular Religious Belief. Thomas is in violation of the Legions non-partisanship by participating in a protest in full American Legion Uniform endorsing the Christian Religion by leading the protest and carrying the Christian flag!
